According to the latest reports, the 2019 Nissan X-trail will continue without bigger changes. The popular crossover has been in offer all around the world for years. The original model came in 2000 and we have seen three generations so far.
The current version is present since 2013, though it received a mid-cycle update last year. Considering the recent refresh, we can’t expect bigger modifications for the next year. Most likely, it will remain in this shape until the redesign, which is expected in about two years. So, the 2019 X-trail is about to continue in the same way, following all those changes that have been introduced last year.
Still, some minor tweaks are possible. We could see few additions in terms of standard equipment, as well as new color options and color scheme on the inside. The launch of the new model is expected late in the year.

The is a 7-seater compact crossover that has been in offer around the world, except in North America. Its primary market is Europe, Australia, Asia etc. In terms of mechanics, this crossover relies on proven design solutions. It rides on a familiar CMF platform which has been in use for numerous models from Renault-Nissan Alliance.
In terms of styling, the crossover follows the brand’s latest design language. The recent update has brought few novelties in terms of styling. Of course, the focus was on the front end, where we saw new headlights, new front fascia etc. Still, there are changes on other parts of the crossover as well. For example, taillights get new shape too. Considering all these visual upgrades from the last year, we don’t expect to see anything new for the 2019 Nissan X-trail. The only possible novelty is the addition of new exterior colors.
